^^ agree, mas maka bwisit talga yung makita mo nanlilimos na magulang na may hawak na anak. naawa ako sa anak at the same time natatakot din. kase sila na susunod na maging bad guys
To Interfere with conception and the choice of family to have the number of children they want to have is no more than NEGLECT of duty on the part of the government.
Emerging economies today used their population and WORKFORCE to improve their economy. I mean workforce... We just need to translate Population into Workforce.
The problem of China and India nowadays is their aging population because of their own reproductive bills.
Our nation survives because of our huge WORKFORCE... why not make them our advantage???
What if Children saw these condoms and contraceptives used and scattered inside their own homes because it's freely given and tolerated by the government?? Morality will surely diminish... God save our country.
Can't you understand what is meant by “There is no culture or subculture in the world that has permitted contraception and then has not gone on to permit abortion,” writes Natalie Hudson in “The Contraception Misconception.”??
Then what was the 85% protection rate from HIV that Esperanza Cabral was talking about when she mentioned condoms? 15% is not astronomically low. You're making up your own statistics.
Yes .. it's the right thing to do.. if you deeply care about it.. your love is always be there for them but that's not enough they will live in a real world..so think about it..
it's just a 30 minute seminar
One of the challenges here in the PH is the lack of division between the State and the Church(es). It's hard to believe the religious groups go against the RH bill out of the mere belief it's against their religious POV; they always have another motive. On the other hand, politicians always suck up to these groups because of the potential votes they can garner.
IMHO, it's simply like this: sex is a physiologic response of any living organism (kaya nga may mga migrations at mating season ang mga hayop e, tayo pa kayang mga tao?) and it should be my responsibility to bear those choices --- I can either prevent a pregnancy, or be responsible if my woman does bear a child.
I'd rather jerk off if I will only choose to face it with the worst of choices: abort the baby (hell NO!) or raise the kid inefficiently (bad parenting skills not counted).
Honestly, even those who are sworn into celibacy feel the physiologic need for sex, hence their need to meditate. Let's see what happens if you drop a beautiful naked woman in the midst of celibates who have not seen one in a loooong time. I doubt there won't even be the slightest physiologic reaction; and I'm not simply referring to an erection.
Those who *force* abstinence unto others are pure hypocrites.
I don't see any harm in passing this bill. At the end of the day, it's still us, who's going to decide whether to render the services provided by the bill or if you think it's not appropriate to your values and beliefs, you're free to ignore it and stick to your own principles.
Imposing one's values and belief on others can bring no good. If it’s for the better why not give this bill a chance? We need to be open-minded and look at the bigger picture instead of painting the negative sides of the bill. The future of our children, and the next generations to come is also at stake here.
-From a Christian supporting RH Bill
Just to re-iterate what I said, I'm not insinuating that the only choices are to have sex or not to have sex.
I simply want to be left with my choice: to abstain or to have responsible sexual activities. It's either that or we see the Filipinos turn into sexually-depraved, cranky, mood-swinging folks. Or a rise in abortion rates. Or a population explosion (not like we're not having that problem... but I digress.)
My body. My needs. My choice. And as Ben Grimm would say, "it'll be a cold day on Yancy street" before someone else will make my choices.

The RH Bill alone is not the solution to our country's ailments. We also need sound economic and monetary policies, as well as effective administration. Without the RH Bill, however, these policies and administration will fall short. I believe it is about time that our country has a comprehensive population policy that is available and beneficial to all, regardless of race, creed, gender, or moral inclination.
(Im)morality and corruption are important considerations, but they are tangential issues to what this bill aims to achieve, and thus, should be addressed in parallel, and not considered impediments to its legislation.
Yes to rh bill.
Our future mother and existing ones depend on it.
I'm all for women's health, birth spacing at responsible parenthood(not just rhythm method but the use of condom, IUD for e.g). But they say Section 3, article 11(?) is for legalizing abortion. All the objectives of these RH bill are already have their proper legal framework in place at may budget na rin dyan sa condom et al. May mga obfuscated provisions dyan na questionable.
But population control and any other genocidal Eugenics pursuit of the Sabbatean Mammon worshipping zionist banksters of the Libor Conspiracy Scandal fame with their Agenda 21/Millenium development goals to cull the many useless eaters of the brown race (just kidding) in the guise of the noblest of goals like eradicate the poor este poverty, pursuit of maternal and child health are just band aid solution to the root cause of these problems, their failed parasitic financial system. We have to return to physical economy as pursued by FDR in the New DEAL making use of Hamiltonian economics.
Kasi practice ng ibang hospitals such as catholic hospitals na pinaparusahan ang babae with suspected illegal abortion. Some of them have been turned away and forced to seek medical care from another hospital
Totoo yan dahil it happened in a "catholic" hospital in Cagayan de Oro city when I was still a student nurse. the family of the woman were crying because the Nuns who ran the hospital would not admit the patient because it was suspected that the patient was bleeding due to illegal abortion.
Sa tingin ko, tama naman si Pia Cayetano with that part of the law. It's not legalizing but helping women who were coerced or given wrong information about abortion dahil hindi nakapag gamit ng contraceptive in the first place.
Not considering therapeutic abortion, did the nun bother to ask why the patient had an abortion in the first place? What if it was a pregnancy due to rape? So they're willing to let the patient bleed to death or die of sepsis?
Back on-topic: do we not have public quorums of any form where the masa can actually read the entire bill, raise questions and get answers? Because honestly, the only reason why people object is because they don't understand the discussion. And there are ignoramuses even adding fuel to the fire because it suits their purposes or it makes them look good.
